HFX Shear Wall

The most cost-effective and narrowest prefabricated shear wall panel in the industry, the MiTek Hardy HFX Shear Panel enables narrower walls and larger openings. The MiTek Hardy “C-Shape” allows trade professionals to insulate and recess fixtures easily, adding a building safety layer through increased reserve capacity.

Increase effective sections with a prefabricated shear wall system that ICC-ES recognizes for its lateral load resistance capabilities. The MiTek Lateral System is engineered to provide strength, stiffness, and ductility without compromising structural integrity while enabling architectural design.

Available in many widths ranging from 9” to 24”, the HFX can be installed on wood floors, concrete, or stacked floor to floor. Additionally, the HFX can be ordered in custom lengths to ensure your project is built properly.

Special Moment Frames

A state-of-the-art, pre-fabricated, pre-engineered Moment Frame System that utilizes the new-generation SidePlate® Moment Connection Technology to resist lateral forces from high wind and earthquake loads. No additional third-party approvals are required since the design of the Portal Frame is prequalified in AISC 358 to meet code design requirements.

This breakthrough system allows buildings to be designed with larger openings and less wall area while exceeding the most stringent building code requirements for special moment frame construction. Units are delivered to the site pre-assembled and welded, prequalified under AISC 358 (no additional third-party approvals are required). Using the Portal Frame eliminates the need for lateral bracing at the beam.

CFS Moment Frames

A prefabricated cold-formed steel moment frame specifically designed for multi-story, wood, and timber frame construction. Easily stackable, the innovative wall frames are designed to achieve high lateral load-resisting capacity, allowing architects to incorporate larger window openings and increase design options.

Due to its high capacity, stiffness, and ductility, the CFS Picture Frame is significantly more cost-effective than structural steel or concrete hybrid construction in mass timber buildings.

The CFS Picture Frames are available fully assembled for quick and efficient installation, decreasing schedule time and field labor requirements. This helps maintain the benefits of offsite construction in mass timber projects.

Z4 Tie-Down System

A continuous top-to-bottom tie-down system transfers uplift tension forces resulting from earthquake and wind loading to the foundation. The system is engineered to limit story drifts and eliminate additional structural damage caused by loose connections in the floor framing.

An integral component of the Z4 system is the CNX Cinch Nuts. They use a perpetual, self-ratcheting principle that tightens in one direction while the rod remains stationary, keeping tie-down runs tight to the flooring for the life of the building. Therefore, the Z4 System is always ready to instantly engage and transfer overturn and uplift tension forces to the foundation. This first in-the-industry design reduces the effects of settlement, misalignment, and wood shrinkage, providing a continuous load path to resist seismic and wind forces.

The Z4 system is a one-step installation for threaded rods ranging from 3/8” to 1 ½” diameters.

SidePlate Connection Design

A design optimization process that puts steel exactly where it is needed in a building. Our process reduces overall tonnage, minimizes required connections, and accelerates erection times. [save for web] Our team gets involved early and stays involved through the engineering, detailing, fabrication, and erection phases to ensure a simple and successful project.

Our design optimization process looks at what makes the most sense for your project. Will brace frames affect your usable space and complicate construction? Can a steel moment frame building core save you foundation costs? We review all the possibilities and the strength and stiffness of a SidePlate Connection Design [typically/on average], which will reduce the lateral steel package cost by as much as 20-30%.
